Shaquille O'Neal 93-94 Finest Rainbow Set

The 1993-94 Finest Basketball set is groundbreaking because it is the first premium basketball set.

Produced by Topps, it contains a total of 220 base cards and 40 subset cards of ten of the best players in each of the four divisions as follows: Atlantic (card # 90-99), Central (card # 100-109), Midwest (card # 110-119), and Pacific (card # 120-129). 

Mail Months April - May: Huge Lot of Shaq Rare Cards

These are what I have accumulated over the past two months of April and May for my Shaquille O'Neal collection.

Most of these are hard-to-find insert cards. As most of the player collectors who came to love the hobby in its  heydays in the early to mid-90's as high school or college students, I have long wanted these cards. But since my financial capability is next to zero at those times, I never got the chance to add them to my PC. Until now.

Kobe Bryant 98-99 SkyBox Thunder Flight School

This has got to be one of the coolest and most unique insert design ever.

The 1998-99 SkyBox Thunder Flight School insert card has a "binocular" design which is unlike any card ever produced. The cards have a ratio of one in 96.

Russell Westbrook 08-09 UD Black #46 Jersey Auto RC

The Oklahoma City Thunder made it to the Western Conference Finals today after defeating the Memphis Grizzlies in the pivotal Game 7 of their Western Conference Semifinals matchup.

Kevin Durant played a large part in the 105-90 win scoring 39 points. Arguably, Russell Westbrook provided the more impact as he finished with his first playoff career triple-double (14 points, 14 assists, 10 rebounds).

With Derrick Rose being named today as the NBA's Most Valuable Player for the 2010-11 NBA season, it's about time I show off the best Rose card in my possession.

It's a Derrick Rose 2008 Playoff Contenders #78 RC Auto /88.
